James Buresh, Amy Moerman & Nancy Michaels represent GCI at a Veggielution project site visit.
GCI partnered with industry design & furniture professionals on an IIDA Northern California project to make improvements to the Veggielution Farm stand that is located in South San Jose. Their farm stand provides 200 boxes of farm fresh fruits and vegetables weekly to underserved families in the South Bay. This program is supported by a government grant and a family-owned farm in San Martin, called Spade and Plow. We are grateful to be able to contribute to this cause!
Veggielution Farm Stand is a local community farm and volunteer-based organization. Veggielution connects people from diverse backgrounds through food and farming to build a better community in East San Jose. They utilize their six-acre farm to bring together and cultivate through Community Engagement, Food System Advocacy and Environmental Education.
The GCI team worked on this pro bono project for months as part of IIDA’s “Project Build Program.” We were so happy to partner with them on this project to benefit the San Jose community!
Amy Moerman drove this project from the GCI side, and has had help from many volunteers. The GCI team worked hard on this project; going on the weekends to volunteer their time for this great cause. The stand was completed mid-April of 2021.
